That looks like our secret dark matter fire effect! No something is wrong here is what you should be seeing.

This could turn into a really cool game.

 

Wait until you see our next puzzles in the works :)

 

I find that I really enjoy creating puzzle functionality. Coming up with puzzles can be hard but once we have them, making them actually happen is pretty rewarding.

Agreed. Coming up with unique and fun puzzles is darn hard at times. But, you get so much joy when your puzzle comes to life. smile.png

The Borrower updated in the Game Launcher with a new puzzle added. Solve the puzzle to open the gate blocking your path.

 

Puzzle Hint: "The answer is shrouded in darkess".

 

--Change List--

 

- New puzzle 'The Combination'

 

- Changed over flame to Shadmars firepit shader flame till I can work out what's going on with ATI.

 

- Dungeon extension

 

- Numerous bug fixes.

ATI have picky compiler, maybe the log reveals the error.

But things to look for are typical float to vecs or vecs to float conversions, vec4 to vec3 conversions etc..

I had to read the game description to understand how to play.

 

But this is a good game start.

 

Now the bad things :

- getting the fire power should not shut down the torch flame , this looks weird as if you release the power the flame start again in the torch

- The flashLight system should be always on , at least a minimal light like the player had some lightening power making light around him , because it is too dark to move around without it.

- You need icons when some flame power can be grabbed or some object can be grabbed otherwise it is hard to understand some interaction is possible.

- I didn't know what to do to open the door i could only grab the flame power.

 

Well perhaps this is what is called a puzzle game

The game is too slow on laptop, how to change the resolution in game ?

No Help menu in game ?

 

Good luck.

Thanks for feedback yougroove. About your first point the name of the game reflects what is happening. You are magic and you borrow the elements. After they are shot they go back because you only borrowed them.

 

We will look at the other things you mentioned.

Like it, maybe add a second hand. This could hold a flame all the time like a torch or evan carry a torch.

 

Look forward to more.

Just tried this and was stuck in the cell for a while but managed to get out :) Looks great and nice atmosphere but I get <10 fps for some reason. Not sure what would be causing such a big hit.
